Hi there. Chris Brignola and Jay Sharfstein here. We're client-facing creative directors who have spent the last 20 years creating and shaping award-winning traditional and digital campaigns. Our expertise lies in translating strategic insights into world-class creative.
Our work has been honored by every major award show including Cannes, One Show, One Show Interactive, D&AD and the Effies. Our experience spans an array of categories including automotive, packaged goods, healthcare, spirits, non-alcoholic beverages, financial services, tech and entertainment.
In 2005, we co-founded Filter Advertising. Soon after, Filter partnered with Defiant Productions and the agency grew into a full-service agency/production hybrid with offices in New York City and Red Bank, NJ. During our time at Filter, we wrote and directed a majority of the agency's television work. Eight years, two offices, 70+ spots and a few million dollars in revenue later, Filter was acquired by Laughlin Constable to be their East Coast presence.
